The Mousetrap

The Mousetrap Backpackers hostel is located in Paihia, the Bay of Islands, New Zealand and is the ideal location to base yourself while exploring the magnificent bays, beaches or any one of the 144 islands.

Soak up the cosy atmosphere of this character house, with tropical gardens in front of Paihia’s native bush reserve, listening to the Tuis and other native birds. The hostel accommodates 35 guests and is only 70 meters from the beach, 5 minutes walk to the town centre and bus stops, even closer to local restaurants and bars.

A few days spent here gives you the chance to experience the natural beauty the Bay has to offer, whether by sailing, cruising, kayaking, diving, walking or flying. Or it is just the perfect place to relax and unwind from your travels, (but be careful you may not want to leave).
